As an energy company involved in the natural gas and electric industries, environmental stewardship is a critical component of our day-to-day operations. Our investment in this sustainability dimension is significant and designed to ensure the sustainable operations of our company and the communities we serve.
Since its adoption in 2009, the NiSource Climate Change Policy has directed NiSource to increase efficiency and reduce the carbon intensity of our operations.
One of our largest investments is the clean-air installations taking place at NIPSCO coal-fired electric generation facilities in northern Indiana.
While NiSource operates in an area with abundant fresh water resources, we recognize the need to be good stewards of water in our region, and continue to invest in and to improve water quality.
NiSource introduced its Habitat Conservation Plan (HCP) in 2014. An HCP is an effective way for some companies – like natural gas pipeline companies – to proactively comply with the Endangered Species Act (ESA) while continuing a normal course of business.
